Paul Millsap's growing range has impressed head coach Mike Budenholzer.
After shooting just 31-of-113 from downtown over seven seasons with the Jazz, Millsap has made 47-of-129 three-point attempts this season. "I didn’t realize Paul could do this much," Budenholzer said. "We thought he was going to be versatile, but I think he’s more versatile. We thought he could extend his range...he’s followed through and done that." Millsap is averaging 20.4 points, 9.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 2.2 three-pointers over his last five games and is on-pace to finish as a top-20 player in standard fantasy leagues.

Paul Millsap had 28 points, 15 rebounds, a steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers on 5-of-9 shooting as the Hawks beat the Nets on Wednesday for their 17th straight win.

He also hit 15-of-16 free throws, and is back on track at the line (in a big way) after a slow start this season. The Hawks have now won 31 of their last 33 games and are finally gaining the attention of the national media, for good reason. Additionally, the team matched last season's playoff-worthy win total of 38 and we're not even to the All-Star break yet.
Jan 29 - 1:51 AM

Paul Millsap filled up the stat sheet vs. Minnesota, notching 20 points with two 3-pointers, five rebounds, six assists and four steals.

The Sapper made 8-of-12 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs and committed only one turnover in 33 minutes, further endearing himself to fantasy owners. He's averaging a steady 2.0 triples over Atlanta's past four games and is second among all PF/Cs in steals per game (1.8), trailing only sticky-fingered Thaddeus Young.
Jan 25 - 8:50 PM

Paul Millsap scored 22 points on 9-of-17 shooting (including two threes) with 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks as the Hawks beat the Thunder in a 103-93 win.

The Hawks look like a well-oiled machine and the Thunder don't look like they've developed for the last four years. DeMarre Carroll was solid with 13 points, four rebounds, three assists and three treys, Al Horford went for 14 and 12 with a three, steal, three blocks and three assists, and Jeff Teague scored 17 points with nine assists and some spare change in the win.
Jan 24 - 1:02 AM

Paul Millsap filled the stat sheet against the Raptors on Friday with 16 points, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

He made both free throws and 6-of-9 from the field in an eight-category masterpiece. Millsap has multiple steals and blocks in each of his last two games and the reality NBA world is starting to learn what the fantasy world already knew long ago: Millsap is a stud.
Jan 16 - 11:27 PM

Paul Millsap filled the stat sheet against the Celtics during a 105-91 win on Thursday with 18 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, two blocks, two steals and one 3-pointer.

The Hawks won their 10th straight and have gone 24-2 since Thanksgiving to help them build a four-game lead over the rest of the Eastern Conference. Millsap hasn't been shooting the ball too well and his defensive stats are down, so he hasn't been his usual beast self. Of course, he's likely going to get hot in a hurry as a top-25 asset in standard leagues.
Jan 15 - 12:41 AM

Paul Millsap (rest) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the 76ers, and Mike Muscala will draw the start in his place.

This will be Muscala's first start of the season, and with a favorable matchup against the 76ers, he could put up some useable stats. However, he remains a risky option and most of the production will likely fall to guys like Dennis Schroder, Al Horford, and Kyle Korver.

Paul Millsap didn't do much during his 25 minutes of action on Sunday, scoring 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting to go with two rebounds, three assists, and two turnovers.

This game wasn't even close, and the Hawks had eight different guys in double-figures, so that explains the semi-dud. Look for Millsap to bounce-back during the Hawks' next game with an extremely favorable matchup against the lowly 76ers on Tuesday.
Jan 11 - 7:22 PM

Paul Millsap hit just 2-of-9 shots for 11 points, nine rebounds, four assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Grizzlies.

We were expecting more from Millsap with Zach Randolph out again, but he couldn't get his shot to go. There is a silver lining though. After struggling for much of the season from the free throw line, Millsap hit 7-of-8 tonight and is shooting 90 percent from the line over his last five games.
Jan 8 - 12:24 AM

Paul Millsap made 11-of-17 from the field for 27 points against the Blazers on Saturday, adding six rebounds, one steal and one block during a 115-107 victory.

This was a huge win for the Hawks because only the Warriors and Blazers have a better winning percentage than they do. The Hawks have been on some kind of run, winning 18 of their 20 games since Thanksgiving. As for Millsap, he's averaged 21.4 points, 9.0 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 0.6 triples on 52.7 percent from the field and 89.7 percent from the line over his last five. That's good.
Jan 4 - 1:53 AM

Paul Millsap scored 22 points on 8-of-10 shooting (1-of-1 3PTs, 5-of-6 FTs) with 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in the Hawks' 107-77 blowout loss to the Bucks on Friday.

The Hawks were due for a stinker and with 22 turnovers and no defense this game was over at halftime. Owners should mostly disregard the outcomes here, including DeMarre Carroll's 0-for-6 outing with just four boards and a steal, and Kyle Korver's 1-of-8 shooting night. Al Horford snuck away with some stats, posting 13 points, five boards and two blocks in the loss.

Paul Millsap missed eight of his 12 field goal attempts on Tuesday, but still racked up 17 points, one 3-pointer, nine rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block.

The Sapper was also 8-of-9 from the FT line and this versatile performance is familiar to his fantasy owners. Last season he was the only player to average at least 1.0 threes, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks per game. It's no surprise that this season he joins Danny Green and Draymond Green as the only players averaging at least 1.0 threes, 1.0 steals and 0.9 blocks.

Paul Millsap scored 17 points during a 93-86 win over the Bulls on Monday, adding eight rebounds, two assists, four steals and one 3-pointer.

He had one of his worst games in over a month on Saturday, but rebounded nicely tonight. Millsap continues to get plenty of shots even with Al Horford being integrated more into the offense and both guys should put up terrific fantasy value. Millsap has been a top-40 player on the season and is probably going to finish higher than that.
Tue, Dec 16, 2014 01:00:00 AM

Paul Millsap was quiet against the Magic on Saturday with nine points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two turnovers.

It was his first game without a block or a steal, and on top of that he didn't even make any treys. Millsap has been flirting with first-round value on the past month after a slow start and should be a top-25 guy.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 09:51:00 PM

Paul Millsap filled the stat sheet against the Nuggets on Sunday with 23 points, two rebounds, two assists, four steals and four 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

He added to his lead in steals per game and has been on fire for the past two weeks, posting first-round value even without this explosion today. Millsap has also made 53.3 percent from the field in his previous 10 games and his early shooting slump is obviously over. He's an elite fantasy asset.
